Do you have a part# or a link for buying this filter?
If I were in your shoes (and I am) I would upgrade to the newer pan and improved internal filter. Next transmission fluid change for me. $58 for the pan is a no brainer.
Part #8C3Z7A194B. The filter is: 8C3Z7A098D
And then presumably you can get rid of the old external filter, although that might mean having to modify the lines.
